Summer Reading

WHAT IS THE KRSD SUMMER READING PROGRAM?

The Kearsarge Regional School District Summer Reading Program provides an incentive to all students to read for pleasure every day during the summer.  It supports the Kearsarge Regional School Board's policy requiring students in grades 5 through 12 to report on books read during the summer.  The KRSD has compiled summer reading lists.  Copies of these lists are available at area libraries and bookstores, the schools, or on the KRSD Website.  

  • Students entering grades 1 - 4 are encouraged to bring back their book logs on the first day of school.
  • Students entering grades 5 - 8 should complete two book reports/artifacts, which will be included in their first quarter grade. These can be submitted the first week of school, or electronically anytime during the summer.
  • Students entering grades 9 - 12 should complete one book report/artifact, which will be included in their first quarter grade. These can be submitted the first week of school, or electronically anytime during the summer.
  • Report forms/logs are provided by the school and available on the KRSD website.
  • Summer reading will be recognized in the fall.

WHY SHOULD STUDENTS READ DURING THE SUMMER?

Reading is an essential skill that requires practice just like swimming or swinging a baseball bat.Those children who don't read during the summer may find themselves at a serious disadvantage when they return to school in the fall.According to the U.S. Department of Education, children who read 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, can dramatically increase their reading and writing skills.

Exercise your mind this summer:

READ EVERY DAY!
